In the past decade many European universities have introduced new undergraduate programs based on Liberal Arts and Sciences. What is Liberal Education and what could it be? Student committees at liberal arts programs of two German universities (Leuphana University Lüneburg and University College Freiburg) announce the 1st European Liberal Education Student Conference to take place from 12th until 15th May at Leuphana University Lüneburg in Northern Germany. It will provide a platform to:
- discuss the various perspectives of students on European Liberal Education
- publish transparently selected conference contributions in an edited volume or academic journal
- bring together students of the Liberal Arts & Sciences as well as like-minded people from all over Europe in the metropolitan region of Hamburg
- start the creation of a European Liberal Education student network
